De La Soul to invite Damon Albarn onto next album
De La Soul have said that they hope to recruit Damon Albarn to contribute to their forthcoming album.

The hip-hop veterans, who worked with the Blur man on the Gorillaz' 2005 single 'Feel Good Inc', said they have just finished contributing to a couple of tunes to the new Gorillaz album, which is tentatively titled 'Plastic Beach', according to De La Soul's Posdnuos, and they hope Albarn will return the favour.

Posdnuos told Entertainment Weekly that the new Gorillaz tracks they worked on are titled 'Sloped Tropics' and 'Electric Shock', and added that the cartoon band's latest effort "sounds amazing. To me, quite honestly, it sounds better than the last album," he said.

Meanwhile, Posdnuos said that De La Soul's new album is titled 'You're Welcome' and is slated to be released in early 2010. The track 'We Are (For the People)' features guest vocals from Chuck D and Flavor Flav of Public Enemy.
